Reflecting its multi-disciplinary approach, MIMIT—Midwest Institute for Minimally Invasive Treatments—employs a team of board certified practitioners from diverse medical backgrounds. Four fellowship-trained interventional radiologists and two general surgeons helm the staff, which also includes three certified physician's assistants. Together, they approach healing with a focus on function, as well as aesthetics, and aim to empower their clients through treatment education. The team specializes in needle-aided sclerotherapy, endo-venous laser treatments, and radio frequency ablation treatments for venous disease, as well as pain-reduction kyphoplasty treatments for spinal compression. They also rely on a blend of non-invasive and surgical techniques to treat issues ranging from peripheral arterial disease to breast cancer.

Dr. Lowell Scott Weil Sr. founded his eponymous institute in 1965 to treat the foot and ankle ailments of Des Plaines–area patients. Now with 10 practice locations and a staff of 15 podiatrists and surgeons, Weil Foot & Ankle Institute has grown into a recognized network that's seen the soles of more than 100,000 patients. This team utilizes technologies such as MRI, digital radiography, and old-fashioned feet tickling to diagnose conditions ranging from fractures and deformities to ingrown or fungal nails and diabetic neuropathy.
Dr. Weil recently completed a study, and presented it the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons, that shows a 63% chance of a nail-fungus treatment clearing a nail as long as there is at least 3 millimeters of clear nail at its base.
